The Leftovers: The Complete First Season Review

Based on the 2011 bestselling novel by Perrotta, The Leftovers is seen primarily through the eyes of police chief Kevin Garvey, played by Justin Theroux, as he experiences life post “the Departure.” After what can only be explained as an instance similar to the biblical rapture, the people of Mapleton, New York, are suddenly shaken to their core as many of their loved ones disappear into thin air. With roughly 140 million people actively missing — 2% of the world’s population — the world starts to question everyone and everything. Will people turn to cynicism, paranoia, and cult-like fanaticism, in order to survive? The eerie and thought-provoking series leaves viewers riveted, second-guessing theories from episode to episode.

  1. Pilot

We do not get HBO but when I heard of it I wanted to watch it because it sounded so good.

I thought the first episode was ok but it got better in the next episode and then I found myself enjoying this show. It is very well done.    

Now I will have to wait until season 2 is out on dvd and Blu-ray to see the second season .

I give this show 4 out of 5.
